It has been forever since I’ve shared anything cooking related on the blog. 2019, I’m bringing back lots of things that you use to see when I first started the blog. To kick off recipes, this one is super easy and doesn’t require a ton of prep beforehand.

Being from Louisiana, I love seafood, plus I’m also a pescatarian. Being that I don’t live there, I don’t get to eat things like boiled crawfish often, so I have to substitute by doing crab and shrimp boil at home.


  • Snow crabs
  • Shrimp
  • Corn
  • Mushrooms
  • Seafood boil seasoning

You can use any type of crab you like king crab, whole crabs, even live crab it’s whatever fancies your taste bud. Same with shrimp, you can use frozen, fresh, whole shrimp, etc. I used snow crab because they are easier to crack once they are cooked. I used frozen shrimp, well it was just easy. You can also add potatoes, sausage, onions, to your boil. I didn’t because myself or Charmingly CJ wouldn’t eat them.

I get a pot of water boiling and add my seasoning. You can use these types of seasons, check out the ones below for suggestions.

Once the water is boiling you can add your corn and crabs, let those cook about 15-20 minutes. I added my shrimp and mushrooms in at about the 15-minute mark, as they don’t take long to cook.
